Description:

The Landscape Conservation Area Use and Management Plan of the towns of Kairala and Luiro (Kairalan ja Luiron Maisemanhoitoalueen hoito- ja käyttösuunnitelma) is an initiative promoted by the Kairala Residents Association (Kairalan kyläseuralta vuonna) in Finland. The association sought to declare this place a landscape conservation area, a category of state protection and management in accordance with the European Landscape Convention. To achieve this, they promoted a continuous participatory process that began with the creation of previous diagnosis studies and recognition of the landscape of the area and ended with a programme of actions and recommendations. Working groups were established for this purpose, consisting of volunteers and experts and local public employees from the Regional Environmental Centre of Lapland (Lapin ympäristökeskukseen). At the end of the process, the Finnish government recognised the place as a landscape conservation area and approved a management plan for it. This recognition gave rise to the third area in this category in all of Finland, approved by the Ministry of the Environment (Ympäristö-ministeriön) in 2010. The plan includes guidelines for planning the landscape, recommendations and proposals, established jointly by the inhabitants and local stakeholders of both towns in order to energise the landscape while recovering its traditional values.
